Michael Essien:Mourinho like a father to me

Michael Essien has credited his season long loan move from Chelsea to Real Madrid to his special relationship with Jose Mourinho, who he sees as a father figure to him.

The pair originally worked together in London when the Portuguese trainer brought Essien to Stamford Bridge from Lyon in 2005 and the midfielder is now relishing the opportunity to work under his former mentor again.
Everything happened so fast, reflected the 29-year-old at a press conference.Mourinho called me and said he was ready to take me. I said yes immediately.
I call him daddy because I see him as like a father. He took me to Chelsea and we have a very good relationship. I understand him very well.
Essien has enjoyed several injury-laden campaigns at Stamford Bridge in recent years, struggling to only 14 appearances last season, something he is keen to change.

He added:
Daddy knows me very well, he knows I can play in any position he wants me to, except goalkeeper.
Real Madrid have very, very good players, but I'm ready to feature anywhere Mourinho asks me to. It'll be a great feeling to win titles this way.
